WalMart. Linux. $200. Be quick, they are being discontinued.

While the MacBook Air mentioned above is small, its the complete opposite of cheap.

I’d recomend a refurbished Macbook from the online Apple Store. You get alot of bang for buck with those.

A MacBook air also doesnt have a cd/DVD drive. It can use one wirelessly, but as far as one ON the hardware, that a negitory.

WalMart should be completely avoided. Unless your hobbies include castrating the United States.
